Brumbies have confirmed that flanker Tom Cusack has penned a new deal with the Super Rugby club.
Cusack started his professional rugby career with National Rugby Championship side Canberra Vikings and made his Super Rugby debut with Brumbies in 2017. He was made the captain of the Vikings for the 2017 season of the NRC and went on to win the Player of the Year award in that season.
“It’s fantastic to have signed a new contract at the club that will allow me to fulfil both my Super Rugby and Olympic ambitions,” Cusack commented.
“It was an easy decision for me to stay in Canberra with the calibre of management and players that we have here. That quality has enabled myself to develop my game further.
“This is an exciting time in my career and I am looking forward to developing as a player in both formats.”
A popular member of the Australia Sevens squad, he made his debut in the format in 2013 and soon went on to establish himself in the format. He was also part of the squad that competed in the Common Wealth Games in 2014 and the summer Olympics two years later.
“We are happy that Tom has committed to the Brumbies,” head coach Dan McKellar said of the announcement.
“He is a Canberra boy who has come through our pathway system and developed into an important member of the Brumbies squad."
